- Mail a copy of the Demand to the tenant on the day it is served
- Certified mail is not required as the Court will assume the mail was delivered
- You must accept full payment if provided with-in the 3 days
- Partial payment can be refused
- If you usually allow rent to be deposited directly into your account notify the Tenant that this has been temporarily suspended (this keeps them from sneaking in a partial payment which may slow the eviction process)
- Hire an Attorney
Hire an attorney to handle the eviction process and serve the initial notice.
If you choose to serve the tenant the first notice yourself and the tenant fails to pay in full in the 3 day period, then hire an attorney to handle the eviction process from there on out.
